Geeky Pumpkin Ideas Perfect to Inspire Kids

Every Halloween my family loves to get creative with pumpkins. Not just my husband, kids, and myself. No, my cousins, aunts, and mom are all in when it is pumpkin time. Getting artistic with pumpkins is a tradition that I love that my children have embraced.

Last year’s pumpkins showcased a few of our favorite movie characters. This year we plan to switch our methods up a little, as well as create with a theme in mind. Since my kids are still building their pumpkin carving skills, most of the designs we go with are simple enough for a 6 and 11 year old to do. As my family plans to get dirty making pumpkin art this weekend, thought I would share some of the pumpkin inspiration circulating out on there that is simple enough to do with children. Maybe one will inspire your next pumpkin creation.
